I'm getting a 10+ FPS boost, things do seem to run smoother, still no signs of AA though. It's progress though!

What card do you have, Dennis? I'm wondering if this thing isn't recognizing my Macbook's hardware...

Its improved my game quite a bit. Before i ran it at Medium/Highest, now with the update i can run it at High/Highest but with draw distance at 20 (which is enough for now).

Game starts lagging in high speed chases though but thats because i should really be running it on Medium & not high.

I'm sure we'll be getting atleast a couple more updates yet so try & hold out hope!

Game still won't launch here.

It /did/ work. Restarted my computer, then it didn't. Nothing on my system changed, it just decided it wouldn't launch the game anym ore.

the drivers didn't help me, I still get a 20fps average in the benchmark at lowest detail, and alot of areas of the game dip into the 15fps range.

According to the benchmark test, it took 97% CPU usage, 85% system memory, and 95% Video memory.

This game is such a resource hogg

I think it's better to visit nvidia.com,to download the alpha version which the nzone.com has a beta version...

just visit this link and select your product or let the site detect it for you and download the latest,maybe helps,post your results

Beta is better than an Alpha.

Plus NZone is for BETA drivers, and Nvidia is for OFFICIAL drivers, that they release to ALL instead of individuals.
